Mirizzi"s syndrome; Symptoms and signs are those of hepatocholangitis; Constriction and stenosis of ductus hepaticus communis (hepatocholedocus) as a rare complication of long-standing cholelithiasis; Mirizzi has emphasised that obstructive symptoms of the hepatic duct may occur as a result of spasm, inflammatory process, or other local organic lesion; The resulting bile retention is sometimes mistakenly attributed to involvement of the common duct or of the sphincter of Oddi; Mirizzi was the first to describe an obstructive jaundice caused by compression of the common hepatic duct by the stone in the cystic duct or the neck of the gallbladder
